xlsh - eXtended Login Shell (c) 2011 Michał Siejak A simple login shell with readline functionality and PAM integration. * When run stand-alone on a virtual console it can replace standard "login" program. * When run in cooperation with X daemon component (xlshd) it can replace XDM/GDM/KDM. Full documentation can be found here: * https://github.com/Nadrin/xlsh/wiki Features: * Small and simple, written entirely in C. * Easily hackable because of compact codebase (~1000 source lines). * Uses PAM for authorization and session management. * Ability to select non-default shell/window manager during logon. * Entirely keyboard driven display manager replacement (when used with xlshd) without the need for any fat libraries or GUI toolkits. * Defaults configured before compilation, some of them can be changed by setting few environment variables. * Single shell script file (/etc/xlsh/xlshrc) for customizing how xlshd launches xlsh. * Introduces a concept of "pre-login shell" known from GNU/HURD. * Only *three* important commands: 'login', 'reboot' and 'shutdown'. * New commands can be easily added (if you need any) by editing xlsh.c * Username autocompletion on TAB. * Zenburn color scheme by default (when run under X). The only build dependencies are: make, a decent C compiler, libreadline and libpam. Configuration options can be edited in include/config.h before compiling. Runtime dependencies for xlshd are: standard X11 distribution with xterm and (optionally) xdotool for enforcing terminal window focus on multi-monitor setups. When using xlsh as "login" replacement remember to tell your getty program to not ask for username. When using xlshd from inittab specify -f flag so it won't fork into background. Example lines from my inittab file: # xlsh on virtual console #1 (tty1) c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 -s 38400 -n -l /usr/local/sbin/xlsh tty1 linux # xlshd starting X server and xterm/xlsh on runlevel 5 x:5:respawn:/usr/local/sbin/xlshd -f Thanks goes to Mateusz Hromada for testing and providing useful patches. ;-) Please report any bugs or issues either via github or via mail to: <my_firstname@my_lastname.pl>
